This day in MLB history, Monday, January 18th.
1950 - Indians pitcher Bob Feller, coming off a lackluster 15-14 season, takes a $20,000 salary cut to $45,000. The pay cut is Feller's own suggestion.
There is NO way the Player's Union would allow such scandalous...I mean honorable, behavior by today's players. NO WAY. There have been numerous posts across the blogs in the last month or so about how great Bob Feller is when it comes to signing for fans. I think I need to get in on that action and preserve a slice of history for both my boys.
